HYDERABAD: To chalk out the modalities for his brainchild programme -- free education from KG to PG, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao would convene a roundtable conference with education experts soon.

At a meeting at the Secretariat here on Monday, KCR said he would hold the roundtable and elicit the opinions of SERT, SCERT professors, academicians and other experts. The government will also send an official team to various universities and foreign countries to study the best education practices.

“The education system in Telangana should be evolved in such a way that it should increase the professional skills of the students and also compete at the international level,” the CM said. The meeting also discussed issues like introduction of English medium, the age from which students can be admitted to hostels, whether the existing number of students are adequate for imparting studies.

In the initial year of KG to PG, a residential school will be set up in each constituency and after reviewing its functioning, the number of schools will be increased from the subsequent years, KCR said.
